Spend an evening with visual artist Charisse Duncan as she shows you the basics of painting with watercolor!
Charisse will recite poetry from the anthology Lift Every Voice: Celebrating 250 Years of African American Poetry, and then paint a watercolor piece inspired by one of those poems. She will show you how to create your own painting.
*Watercolor paper is recommended, as other papers tend to curl when painted. We can also email you a sketch created by Duncan that you can print out and color using any materials you have on hand.
